Cool, thank you for sharing. Don't think I can even dream of winning but could still be fun to enter. Oh and admit it... you posted this just to see how many people are surprised that you are over 35. :-)

That would be cool. I am going to pass this on to a few of my friends who sadly do not have a google+ account.... I'll just tell them they have to submit their photos through G+.
 
when I saw this
I really really wanted to participate
was so disappointing that the age restriction
was not listed on the original advertisement...

I think it would be very exciting ♥
